Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and First Landing State Park (formerly Seashore State Park), the North End exhibits historical landmarks at both ends; the old Cavalier Hotel to the South and The Cape Henry Lighthouse to the North.
The Old Cavalier, built in 1927, is undergoing a $75 million dollar transformation into the Cavalier Residences.
The North End actually consists of several smaller neighborhoods, including the private and established section of Princess Ann Hills. The area is also known for a very active Garden Club and Civic League.
Croatan Beach is a residential neighborhood located on the Atlantic Ocean south of Rudee Inlet and north of Camp Pendleton near the Virginia Beach oceanfront. The beach itself is three quarters of a mile long with two designated surfing areas and has long been a favorite of local surfers.
With homes built from the 1960’s until as recent as 2009, Croatan Beach boasts oceanfront homes as well as a variety of homes on Lake Wesley with direct deep water access to the Atlantic Ocean, private lakefront homes, and more.
"Laura is a very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for her clients. She's incredibly responsive and always one step ahead when preparing for the selling side or buyer side. We have bought and sold 8 homes during our marriage, so our praise for her covers many transactions."
